Monitoring is a good thing. The largest caldera in the US is showing alarming growth and is moving.

In 38 pages no one has torn apart a single Jindal policy. I have seen people tear apart his name, appearance, and delivery.

I then quickly forget liberals can have an intellectual debate.

Yes, I saw the original and it is authentic. At least he produced one which is more than some have done. I really don't care if he is Hindu, Catholic or Southern Baptist.

The reason Mt St Helens proved to be so deadly was that the lava was thick like lumpy porridge rather than runny like honey. The result was that it formed a solid plug which resisted movement until the pressure beneath it built up to a critical level - at which point a weak spot in the mountain's flank (bulged outward by the internal pressure) gave way during a small earthquake caused by magma movement in the depths of the peak. Once the flank gave way the internal pressure was released in an atomic-bomb-like horizontal blast. A similar violent eruption of Mt Mazama created Crater Lake many thousands of years ago.

The Hawaiian volcanoes have runny lava that flows much more freely and frequently - and thus doesn't build up so much internal pressure. All volcanoes are of course dangerous, but some are much more treacherous and unpredictable than others. The volcanoes of the West Coast fall into that latter category.

Even so the 1984 Erruption of Mauna Loa did cause signifigant damage and there is a geological record of extremely potent pre-historic erruptions. I figure better safe than sorry, but then again we probably agree on the main issue that funding for volcanic monotoring is important in both areas. The only time they would probably need an island wide evacuation is if it did blow up on a pre-historic level which is highly unlikely but not impossible.

Wait a minute. Life begins at conception correct?

Wouldn't that mean that since Piyush was concieved in India 4.5 months before his parents came to Baton Rouge that he is actually an Indian citizen?

We need to start up the lawsuits asap on this.

It may LOOK authentic - but how do you know it wasn't a clever forgery? Are you an expert in such documents? Did you analyze the paper to be sure it's really 30+ years old? How about the ink? Are you sure it's a type of ink actually made back then? And then there's the signatures - did you verify them? Did you look up the attending doctor to validate he actually REMEMBERS the birth? I heard an internet rumor that Jindal was actually born in India and smuggled into this country later.

Or for that matter how do we know that you are telling the truth about actually seeing it? Maybe you are just covering for him because Jindal is one of YOUR guys.

etc, etc, etc.

Sound pretty stupid?
It IS - as are the similar moronic demands for detailed proof Obama is actually an American.

Yeah, yeah, and maybe a few slime ball lawyers pleading for public donations to finance them. Seems there are plenty of idiot suckers out there willing to fund such frivolous suits.

I propose that we economize by eliminating hurricane monitoring from the national budget. Also, couldn't we do without all those Corps of Engineers projects in the lower Mississippi river?
